1st 5 years for K-State MBB coaches.

More than one person has kvetched about HCFM this season, which made me curious as to how he compares to other K-State basketball coaches. So for the first five years of their careers, here is how K-State coaches since WWII have done. Some of the coaches were able to parlay the success on the court to league championships and national tournament success.

I'll continue to edit HCFM year 5 record and winning percentage as the season progresses. If my math is wrong, send me an email and I'll correct it after work.

*through 2/21 game.

**Gardner's first five years at K-State as head coach percentage is 53% but WWII was between the years as coach, so I calculated the periods as separate percentages.
